Deconstructing the Elvis tree
I've never liked taking down Christmas trees. But unless you live in one of those year-round Christmas shops in Canada, you have to. If you've been following my blog religiously, you know we had two trees this year, my traditional Elvis tree decorated completely with Elvis themed decorations and our normal tree.
When we begin taking down our trees, Tess chose to play her Neil Diamond Christmas album. I pointed out that this was just wrong since Neil Diamond is Jewish and it seems hypocritical for him to be singing Joy to the World and Here Comes Santa Claus. But she likes Neil Diamond and it did add a sort of surreal touch to the whole taking the tree down drudgery.
I also decided to chronicle the whole experience. One, I've never done this before (film was pretty pricey) and two, I thought it would be fun to share with the blogger community what a day in my life is like. So here is my photo essay called, "Deconstructing the Elvis tree." Enjoy:
